Shakira is pulling the strings for her new album…
The 37-year-old Colombian singer-songwriter and returning The Voice coach has revealed the new artwork of her upcoming self-titled album.
For the album cover, Shakira stares down the camera while dressed in black lingerie-like attire and holding a guitar.
Shakira, who on Twitter alone has nearly 24 million followers, led the charge on social media on Friday (Feb. 14), giving fans a peek at the new art work.
“The new Shakira album will launch in 39 days,” Shakira posted on Twitter. “We thought you’d like to see the top.”
Fans quickly took to Twitter to offer their opinions.
“You look beautiful,” wrote fan Alejandro Armendariz. “Thank you.”
Other fans wondered if the new cover art was simply a tease and are hoping for a different kind of cover. “Is this a joke omg,” wrote another commentator.
The release of the cover comes on the heels of the recent release of Shakira’s single “Can’t Remember to Forget You,” featuring Rihanna. In addition, she released a Spanish-language version of the track, entitled “Nunca Me Acuerdo de Olvidarte.”
Shakira’s forthcoming album will be released on March 25 and, according to published reports, will also include a country song with fellow The Voice coach Blake Shelton.
The new season of The Voice is currently in production.
